7th April 2020
We may have closed our doors on 20 March to do our bit to 'Stay Safe, Stay Home', but we're keeping our ear to the ground for opportunities for you to keep connected and enjoy a variety of experiences from your own home. We're therefore delighted to share, that thanks to our friends at Modern Films, you can still enjoy one of films we had planned for our April cinema programme, The Perfect Candidate.
Your online screening experience also includes a Q&A with the film's director Haifa Al Mansour and even better part of your 'ticket price' is donated to the local cinema of your choice - hopefully you'll choose to support us.
The Perfect Candidate (PG)
A determined young doctor who decides to run for municipal council sweeps up her family and community as they struggle to accept their town's first female candidate and watch her fight for social change on a local level.
1h 41mins | Arabic language with English subtitles | Directed by Haifaa Al Mansour
